    First "Mod(s)" are on the car. Had Clear Bra and tint done

    I've been waiting since I got the car to have the Clear Bra put on the front and the windows tinted, and got them both done yesterday through a local business named Speed Shield.

    http://www.speedshieldusa.com/

    The Clear Bra installer is Trey Pappas and he's been doing protective film installs for 8 years originally starting on aircraft. So he's got a lot of experience with it. I took it up to his shop area at a hanger located at one of the local airports, but he can also come to the customer. Here's a few pics from yesterday while he was installing it, and then a few shots after he was finished taken of the front end.
















    I had the entire front bumper/facia, done and then the first 24" of the hood, fenders, and the mirrors. In total it took him only 4 hours to get finished even with me bugging him and asking questions.

    So if anyone is in the D/FW area and considering getting their vehicle Clear Bra'd or windows tinted here's the folks that can do it with lots of experience.

    WOW, the first 24"? that seems like a lot. My 3M clearbra only goes past the rear of the top of the headlights by about an inch.
    Your car looks kick ass.

    Thanks F-man

    The original kit on my CTS-V was 12-14" on the hood and fenders, but Clear Bra has a 24" kit for the STS-V. In that 2nd pic you can pretty much see how far up the hood and fender pieces go.

    http://www.invisiblemask.com/cgi-bin...AC&model=STS-V

    I had several rocks or whatever strike the hood on the CTS-V just above where the clear bra ended, so I asked to have the 24" one put on the STS-V.

    However Trey can also customize the install and if I had wanted I could have had the whole hood and fenders covered. Apparently some of the M5 customers he's done has asked for that.

    I guess next they will offer a kit for the entire car.

    How much did the clear bra cost you?

    Thanks

    Re: First "Mod(s)" are on the car. Had Clear Bra and tint done

    I did a post on this subject under the regular STS section not the 'V' section and most of the replies were not favorable. I have an 07 STS and at first only wanted to do the headlights and parking/fog lights, after seeing what happened to my 00 STS lenses, then thought about doing the whole front end. Can I get some more opinions?

    Looks good.

    Seems to be a top notch installer, can't even tell it's installed from you pictures.

    I may kid but that is one nice looking car and the black just looks awesome

    I saw a kit that did the entire front clip and the mirrors, it cost $2,500. Don't think they will do an entire car, it would be cheaper to repaint!
